What is a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist specifically works with children from infancy to teen years and has the qualifications to care for a child's oral health throughout the various stages of childhood.
Why is it important?
Starting at 6 months, children start to grow their baby teeth and around 6 to 7 years of age start to lose their first set of teeth.
The sooner children begin getting regular dental checkups, the healthier their mouths will stay throughout their lives. Early checkups help prevent cavities and tooth decay, which can lead to pain, trouble concentrating and other medical issues. Youngsters with healthy teeth chew food easily, learn to speak clearly and smile with confidence.

Protect Your Children's Teeth
The American Dental Association and The American Academy of Pediatrics say that every child should visit a dentist by age 1 – or as soon as the first tooth appears. This “well baby visit” teaches parents and caregivers how to care for their children’s teeth and help them remain cavity-free.
